YouTube Selection: Patrick (H) Willems’ Defense (?) Of Michael Bay

Patrick Willems discusses the career of potential auteur Michael Bay. Yes, that Michael Bay.

If you know anything about movie directors, and you know who Michael Bay is, chances are you have a negative view of the guy.

Well, YouTube essayist Patrick (H) Willems has some thoughts on Bay’s aesthetic.

Over a two part series, Willems goes through Bay’s entire filmography and looks at the actual look of Bay’s work.  And…he makes a good case, not that Bay is necessarily a good filmmaker, but rather a distinctive one.  I’d say he made a good case.  See for yourself.
